2015 Terre Rouge "Ascent" Sierra Foothills Syrah (Previously $100)

SKU #1562604 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Smoky, earthy anise and dark-chocolate aromas give way to concentrated and layered black-plum, clove and blackberry flavors as this full-bodied wine expands on the palate. Its texture is richly tannic and the mouthfeel is generous, prolonging the lush flavors on the finish. A perennial standout, this wine has proven it can age well. *Top Cellar Sections 2018* (JG) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

Outer quote mark A selection of Terre Rouge’s best barrels, this syrah ages in mostly new French oak for two years, then in bottle prior to release. That maturation rounds the wine’s tannins and softens the structure a bit while the spiciness continues to drive through a smoky, resinous, almost feral atmosphere of fresh blackberries and black plums.

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Terre Rouge's flagship Syrah is in fine form once again, and, rather than being a wine of immense ripeness and heft, it already shows glimmers of refinement to come. It enters with a flourish of fully ripe fruit before turning down the volume in favor of structured richness, and, even if encroaching, back-end tannins send a very clear warning signal that extra patience is in order, it conveys a careful sense of proportion and varietal precision with the fruity persistence that makes six to eight years of cellaring a proposition entirely free of risk. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (10/2018)
